Ok so im going for my urine test at the doctors today and the nurse mentioned that a blood test is expensive?. so i was wondering if any of you have any input. I was just put on my dp's health plan about 4 or 5 months ago. We are only common law, but i think they think we're married. Im only about 5 weeks into this so im not sure what to do.

Don't you have provincial health care? Blood tests shouldn't cost anything as it is all covered under canadian health care

kira, a blood test should cost nothin in canada. msi should cover the costs of this. the only blood test that i know of that would cost money would be a test to confirm who the father of the child was.

I live in Ontario and blood tests are covered under OHIP (Ontario's provincial health care). They are expensive and my doctor didn't want to do one either even though I would be covered. I believe it is because she didn't feel it was necessary. If they can get the info from urine as opposed to blood, then they would test your urine. I wouldn't worry about this. If they test your urine and don't get an answer, then maybe they will order a blood test then.
